Almost Harvest Day For The Bone Orchard!

bone_orchard_doironWe’re thrilled to tell you that THE BONE ORCHARD by Paul Doiron comes out tomorrow! The News & Observer has named it one of the best mysteries of the month, saying, “Paul Doiron has created a character I keep coming back to, book after book.”

More praise, interviews, tour news, and an excerpt after the jump!

“As always, Doiron describes his state so vividly that it becomes not just the setting but also a character in its own right,” says the Associated Press, calling the book “both a rich exploration of character and a satisfying mystery story.”

The Plain Dealer says, “Doiron, with engaging style, vividly captures the beauty and danger of the Maine landscape, as well as the economic and moral impulses that drive its citizens.” 

Here’s some high praise from the Maine Sunday Telegram:

A satisfying shift in BONE ORCHARD as warden evolves.

THE BONE ORCHARD is one of Doiron’s best stories, most skillfully plotted. It is also a slightly sly but satisfying retrospective of his earlier work, with Bowditch prompted at various points to reflect on his errant ways with women, family and colleagues.

The book’s climax and ending are especially satisfying. For those who have read all of Doiron’s novels, there’s pleasure in finding a particular story line that was introduced two books prior and toyed with in the last book finally come to fruition – almost. A thread of the story teasingly emerges in the last pages as something that will leave a Dorion fan eagerly awaiting his next book.

Doiron recently spoke with blogger Clinton Greaves, fellow novelist Julia Keller, NPR affiliate WGVU, NBC affiliate WCSH, Jen’s Book ThoughtsBangor Daily News, and the Kennebec Journal.
